For those of you who don't know, my pancake juggling friend Scot Nery has been putting on a circus & variety show in L.A. for last 111 weeks. Rain or shine, he has introduced a ridiculous amount of energy and the best talent from around the world.
The show is called Scot Nery's Boobie Trap and there is nothing else like it. Really! You've got to see this show!
The format is unique in that it features fifteen 4-minute acts that are peppered with Scot's frenzied hosting personality and his awesome house band Fire Leopard.
The show is eccentric and the entertainers rotate every week so you never know what you're going to get. In the past we've seen:
- Guinness-Record-holding hula-hoopers
- World champion knife throwers
- Cirque de Soleil aerialists
- Amazing Ventriloquists
- Standup comedians
- Sword swallowers
And now, each and every Wednesday, Scott and his talented army have a brand new home at 6555 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $25 at the door and $17 if you buy them in advance.

There's still magic in the world, as evidenced by this fairy's-eye view of Children's Fairyland, that charming 70-year-old storybook theme park in Oakland, California. You might remember that when I'm not blogging, I work with Fairyland. WELL… months before we were mandated to shelter in place, a local photographer, Stephen Loewinsohn, contacted our team at […]
Vacuum cleaners have come a long way since those giant bulky bag behemoths that used to take up most of the hall closet. Machines that handle that kind of cleanup now have to be more than just carpet sweepers. They need to be small, powerful, convenient, and capable of handling a variety of big and […]
Everybody's got a story. Unfortunately, not everybody has the tools to tell that story the right way. That's especially true for someone looking to produce their first screenplay. Just as with any type of writing, penning a script for the screen has a set of rules all its own. Understanding that structure, as well as […]
Even as the world takes tentative steps toward reopening against the ebbs and flows of COVID-19, movie theaters remain in a netherworld limbo. High-profile film releases continue shuffling as theater chains, studios and filmgoers grapple with the fact that an enclosed theater may not be a safe place to be for some time to come. […]
